Kevin Kasselder

Owner, Founder, Guide, Cook

Kevin is the main man here at Clear Creek. He was the one who found this property back in 1997. He saw the potential in it, had a vision of what it could be, and went to work turning it into what it is today. As the owner of Clear Creek and the patriarch of the Kasselder family, Kevin has his hands in everything, from game keeper to field dresser, guide to groundskeeper, bartender to master cook, and everything in between.

Kelly & the Kids

Pictured above

Kevin's wife Kelly is an integral piece of the lodge's smooth operation, and each of the kids do their part in contributing to the family business. Jake is one of the expert guides here at Clear Creek, and Drew, Damon, Kortney, and Shelby can often be found helping out as needed. This is a crew of accomplished hunters, so you may see a few photos (not to mention a few mounts) of some of their proudest takedowns on the walls.

Sid Haarberg

Hunting Guide

Sid and Clear Creek go way back. As one of Kevin's college buddies, Sid has been involved in the operation since day one. He's one of the expert guides here, and his colleagues describe him as "very loyal" and "just one of those guys everyone likes." He's a skilled dog trainer, and as an expert guide here at the lodge, it should come as no surprise that he's a great guy to hunt with. Sid is an absolute staple in the Clear Creek family.

Our Story

Clear Creek Upland Game Lodge is a family-owned outfitter in rural Wheeler County. We got our start back in 2002, when Kevin Kasselder decided to turn one of his favorite hobbies and past-times into a lucrative business he could share and enjoy with friends, family, and fellow hunting enthusiasts near and far.

Our Vision

Every business has a vision, and ours is to continue the family business and see it grow. We consider it a privilege to be known for creating lifetime-caliber memories for our guests, and we hope Clear Creek's legacy remains just that for generations to come.
